Social media features. Our website uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ to enable you to share information with these channels. The Social Features are identified on our website by our display of the companies’ logos. These cookies files are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not ESAT – are responsible for their use. As such, we can’t guarantee that we have listed every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change. When you visit a page on the ESAT website that contains Social Features, your browser establishes a direct connection to the applicable social network’s servers. The Social Features inform the social networks what pages you have accessed on ESAT site, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you click the Facebook “Like” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by them. Even if you are not logged into the social network, and do not click on a Social Feature on the ESAT site, there is still a possibility that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address and cookie information to the operator of the social network.
